ruby emerald or opal reticulated sterling silver leaf design drop earrings
Each leaf gets cut out of sterling silver sheet individually and then taken to red hot melting point, slightly distorting the original shape. Then I scatter silver dust onto the melted surface to add texture. They are then soldered onto curved little branches and decorated with either a natural 4 mm ruby, natural 4 mm emerald or natural 4 mm Australian opal. All stones are of high quality.
The earring itself is 45 mm long or 60 mm including the drop from the hook. The pair weighs 7 grams together.
